I'm the first to say that the system is horrendously flawed (hence my name) but this year it will work to our favor. Even if an undefeated Florida squeaks by and there is a perfect storm of 2 other undefeated teams deserving of a spot in the game, we're not being left out. And I might be first in line to say that we should be - despite my routing interests, my plans already to go out to pasadena, and on top of that a side stake on the outcome. In fact I sort of hope it happens and an undefeated USC or Texas is left out so a playoff system gets more traction. Another side note is that linear formulas severely miscalculate at the extreme ends of the distribution. Whether we play Charleston Southern or Vanderbilt has a huge impact on our RPI/SoS but the odds of either team beating us is both very small. So anyone doing meaningful analysis to compare Florida versus other top tier teams should throw BOTH games out, because a win in either spot gives us no new information. And yet, RPI/SoS will create a huge negative bias by the inclusion of Charleston Southern instead of a slightly better team that still has very little chance of putting an L on our schedule.
